SUN Mobility, a leading provider in energy infrastructure and services for electric vehicles (EVs), is building a Smart Network to effectively deploy its universal energy infrastructure in partnership with Microsoft. SUN Mobility's Smart Network will use Microsoft's technology to connect the Sun Mobility Smart Battery and Sun Mobility Quick Interchange Station (QIS) with end users through a mobile application. The Smart Network will help users experience seamless service delivery of SUN Mobility's energy infrastructure by tracking battery charge and identifying the nearest QIS.
The SUN Mobility Smart Network comprises of tools, software and platforms. Software programs enable autonomous operation for effective service delivery of the batteries and stations. Based on travel demand, energy availability, route patterns and traffic dynamics the tool is developed to select sites/locations to deploy the stations. The high-availability hyperscale Internet of Things (IoT) platform interconnects the batteries and stations and collects continuous telemetry data. The system includes live tracking, Big Data analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) based predictive models to optimize the energy service delivery.
Chetan Maini, Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman of SUN Mobility, said, "SUN Mobility's Smart Network enables us to plan and optimize our energy infrastructure investments. We are leveraging the latest technology to improve the availability and performance of our batteries and interchange stations. Better utilisation of assets helps us to offer energy services to our users in a cost-effective and efficient manner."
